Abstract

Insects and other invertebrates provide ecosystem services that are vital for successful restoration and habitat recovery, but their myriad roles are often overlooked and few groups have been studied thoroughly. Urban environments have unique ecologies. Responses of insect populations to restoration and management can raise considerations for projects targeted toward other groups as well as impact the ultimate success of those projects. This talk will discuss ways in which insects and other invertebrates can inform urban restoration; present case studies in urban systems; highlight common themes across different projects; and end with some thoughts about how insects can help us build better cities for both people and wildlife.
